Frequently Ask Question - Wedding Photography

Don’t miss your opportunity to capture the adventurous magnificence of Miami by scheduling your engagement shoot 2 hours before Sunset. There are popular locations, such as the beach, that a sunrise session would be the ideal choice. However, I would only recommend this if you are a morning person.
Miami is one of those places that stays gorgeous year-round—which is part of what makes it so perfect for engagement shoots. Wintertime is often the best season as the temperature can go down to low 70, making your outdoor shoot more enjoyable. If you decide to have your engagement photos during hurricane season in Miami, I highly recommend having a backup day due to severe weather conditions
I do offer a complimentary consultation to help with wardrobe-styling and free guides
Permits and fees are typically venue-specific, I will provide you all the information once you have selected your location. Word to the wise: don’t head to your photo venue without looking into the photography permits and fees you will need.
